"'Run Dem' is about running things in a positive way"

Belgium’s Lowup Records today release ‘Run Dem’, which sees the link-up between France/Belgium-based DJ Mellow and UK-based Nigerian vocalist Magugu (who featured on a track with Rukus recently).

“‘Run Dem’ is about running things in a positive way,” the label says. “Spreading positive vibes and a feeling of brotherhood through the crowd. A grievance against the cold and grim world surrounding us. A live transmission from deep within the heart of darkness jungle.”

Swing Ting/Mixpak affiliate Famous Eno has stepped in for the rework – which we’re premiering below – offering up a cut laced with delicate jabs of bass that allows space for Magugu’s gruff tones.

It certainly doesn’t disappoint, showcasing the kind of driving, rhythmic sensibilities that’s made Famous Eno a producer so in demand.

DJ Mellow & Magugu’s ‘Run Dem’ is out today, 29th March 2019, on Lowup Records – purchase it here.
